ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
Unsettlement
Through July 7, 2018 / MUMA

Jasmina Cibic / The Pavilion

Unsettlement is an international group exhibition that explores the ways that power manifests through architecture and in the built environment. The artworks presented register the material force and histories of architecture, and encourage a productive sense of upheaval and re-appraisal.

Unsettlement features artists from Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, United States of America, Italy, United Kingdom, Iraq, Slovenia and Australia. Through their engagement with specific architectural forms, the works in the exhibition offer insights into distinct cultural contexts, histories and social struggles. A number of defining characteristics of our contemporary condition emerge; namely the effects of accelerating globalisation and mass urbanisation, the legacies of colonial occupation across the world, and the control enacted by state and economic infrastructures.

Unsettlement is conceived as both a contemporary condition – in which our claim to the spaces we occupy is increasingly precarious – and a strategy for artistic, social and political engagement. From subtle gestures of reclamation to more radical remodeling, the works in Unsettlement strive to confuse architecture’s functionality, undermine its authority or explode its mythologies. In doing so, they make visible the power dynamics and infrastructures shaping our world.
